A Frosty Silence - Poem by Marilyn Lott

Near silence was felt all around
The sky was a pale cold gray
The ground was frosty white
As though it were here to stay

I was wandering around by myself
My thoughts stood amazingly still
As though the day was on pause
It was just that kind of feel

But I wasn't alone at all
Ducks quacked at a nearby pond
Birds flew from tree to tree
Above my head and beyond

Off in the distance I saw
A couple of horses by a fence
Frozen like statues they were
Their muscles seem to be tense

It was a day I'll long remember
A day I spent with Mother Nature
Like a scene in a Christmas card
My mind will forever capture!
